That 70's Dress

I am pretty sure this dress looks cuter in person than in this photo.  My cats seemed to think so but they also seem to think I look fine in a bathrobe as long as I am petting or feeding them.   Speaking of cats, last night I missed my opportunity to capture a video that I am certain would have gone viral and made me a fortune.   Baxter the cat managed to get himself stuck in a paper bag and ran around for a least a minute before the bag was shredded and he was freed. No harm was done, other than to his pride.  The cat toys by my feet are survivors of the event (they were in the bag).

I have always liked this dress because it is easy to wear and somewhat flattering.  However, I wonder if it is starting to look a little dated.  Not that that will stop me from wearing it, but I wonder if anyone else thinks the same.

Good Enough

Some days fashion is fun and getting dressed is an exiting exercise in creativity.  Other days you are just happy that you are protected from the elements and didn't tuck your skirt into your underwear.  Today is one of those other days.

I almost never wear burgundy, but when I saw this dress on super sale  I took a chance.  I like it although next time I'll pair with another sweater.

Green Dots

I know this belt doesn't exactly go with this outfit, but I needed something to cover up the fact that I could not zip this skirt up all the way (and still breathe).   Vintage is great but it can be hard to wear when you are waist challenged.

The only good thing about this photo is that you are so distracted by my strange pose, you don't really see my knee scars.

I have been doing a really good job of avoiding sales and shopping for the last few weeks.  One exception is this shirt which I snagged at Target while on an emergency Cap'n Crunch run last week.  The pattern is little zoo animals and if I get as much wear as I do from my other animal print top, my investment will be well worth it.
